Out of all the different places I could have chosen to travel in, there are a lot of really exciting things in Denmark I would not have found anywhere else.
In absolute terms, Copenhagen is by far the priciest city in Europe – there are so many restaurants, and they’re so expensive – but there’s absolutely no other city that has a density of public parks as well.
The price of all sorts of things in Copenhagen is very high but that’s because it has some of the most sustainable and most interesting culture, and the flavours and palates I’ve encountered are unique and extraordinary.
It would be impossible to choose one thing as the highlight of my trip but if I had to handpick one most definitely it would be Lumiere, the lighting exhibition.
It’s been going on since 2009 and actually cost more than the whole Edinburgh Festival in direct costs. It’s a spectacular light and sound extravaganza, its an amazing way to really experience Copenhagen. I particularly recommend the day of the Eclipse party, where people gather in the city square to see the magical shows happening.
There is a huge concentration of beers in Copenhagen and it is an amazing town for drinking to, because the prices are so affordable, you can get a flat pack of beer and fill up the rest of the bottle later.
